Brownielocks and The 3 Bears
Classic, Clean, Cheesy but Fun


for children of all ages.

These riddles have been around for years.  You're probably going to kick yourself for not remembering the answers if you are older than 30!
And, for the rest of you, well they're so corny you will groan as you laugh.
They remind me of old vaudeville jokes, actually.

Anyway, after the question then put your mouse over the and the answer will be revealed to  you.  This save the page from being too wordy, and well, keeps a bit of suspense to the riddles as well.

If using a smart phone to view these pages, just put your finger on the symbol and hold it for a moment. A pop up that contains the answer will appear. To close the pop up, just tap elsewhere on the screen.

 So don't cheat by putting your mouse over the ? first now!

Here are the lyrics to our Midi titled "The Riddle Song" - A traditional American Classic
I assume from the Appalachian Mountains?  When I listened, it sounded a lot to me like
the tune, "The 12th of Never" sung by Donny Osmond years ago. Doesn't it?

The Riddle Song Lyrics

I gave my love a cherry
That had no stone
I gave my love a chicken
That had no bone
I told my love a story
That had no end
I gave my love a baby
With no crying.

How can there be a cherry
That has no stone?
And how can there be a chicken
That has no bone?
And how can there be a story
That has no end?
And how can there be a baby
With no crying?

A cherry when it's blooming
It has no stone
A chicken when it's piping
It has no bone
The story that I love you
It has no end
A baby when it's sleeping
It's no crying.
